"I applaud Jill on compiling such a thorough, easy-to-read, and practical book on nutrition. Although it is focused on people with diabetes, the information really applies to anyone who wants to eat healthier. I found the goals for each week particularly beneficial in keeping me on track. Rather just another fad diet program, this book is focused on opening your eyes to the haves rather than the have nots. I have incorporated many previously overlooked healthy foods into my diet since reading this book."

"This comprehensive weight-loss guide for people with diabetes will educate you and motivate you to take control of your weight while managing your diabetes at the same time. It's not a drab one-size-fits all kind of plan, which for sure does not work for the masses. Jill Weisenberger takes the approach that everyone is different and that you need to tailor your weight management plan to your life, your preferences, and your health needs. You'll set reasonable goals, learn new skills and strategies, track your progress on innovative monitoring forms, and discover a healthier, happier, and more productive life."
